hydroponics/aquaponics
 
I wonder if there is anybody growing plants in their floating home?
I believe it is possible and it is important to be independant...

Aeroponics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

or better if fogponincs like this guy:

There are also researches about just using sea/ocean water to grow anything (using seawater as nutrition)...

Tell me your thoughts pls. And like pets, if you have a garden in your ship, how it works legally moving around world?

Regards,
sosriqwe.

Australia, NZ, New Cal do not let you bring any live plants.

We grow plants onboard but not under way (except for sprouts).

Even it is possible to grow your own tomatoes aboard, it is not allowed to go to some places on this planet with them; right? You have to buy them... :)

Prob noblem, Sir. BTW they also ban all seeds and all soil.

Elsewhere it is all very relaxed. (But I have nil experience of N. America).
